Jeff Bridges diagnosed with lymphoma







This hits a little close to home for me. My father was diagnosed with lymphoma 7 years ago, which he had no clue he had until he had a routine exam. It took over a year of chemo and radiation until he was finally in remission. And he's been in remission for years now. I am thankful for that.

Wishing Starman, The Dude all the best.

While it's terrible news, lymphoma is highly curable. If it's Hodgkins it has about an 85% five year survival rate. My sister went through it. No cancer is good but lymphoma has one of the best prognosis of any malignancies.

Re: Jeff Bridges diagnosed with lymphoma

Two of my uncles (brothers) had lymphoma, so itís concerning for me if thereís something in my family history.

Both survived and seem healthy today.

However, one uncle lost his voice for over a year. He eventually got it back and is fine now, but that was some scary shit.

Re: Jeff Bridges diagnosed with lymphoma

Good news: Comparatively high 5-year survivability
Bad news: Andy Whitfield died of Lymphoma
Bright side: There are a ton of newer immunotherapy drugs to help fight it.

Bridges is in remission. But, he also had COVID.



Here's his blog, but it's hard to read since it's hand written

Re: Jeff Bridges diagnosed with lymphoma

I was just thinking about Jeff Bridges the other day. Iím glad to hear his cancer is in remission. Hopefully COVID doesnít complicate anything. Iíd imagine his immune system has to be pretty darn week at the moment.

Sounds like good news!

I'd have to disagree with your assessment of the readability of the blog. It's messy, but very easy to read. Maybe because my handwriting is pretty poor, too.

Re: Jeff Bridges diagnosed with lymphoma

I missed the part that said he had COVID... damn that's gotta suck. Cancer goes into remission and you can't even be excited about it cause you've got COVID.

Crazy Heart, Hell or High Water, True Grit. First Tron. Even latest Tron. I’ve always liked him.
Get well soon BB.

I know it ain’t as good as the original, but the Vanishing was good too.
